Today’s Gospel Reading
As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!’ Then Jesus asked him, ‘Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down.’
When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Peter, James, John, and Andrew asked him privately, ‘Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign that all these things are about to be accomplished?’ Then Jesus began to say to them, ‘Beware that no one leads you astray. Many will come in my name and say, “I am he!” and they will lead many astray. When you hear of wars and rumours of wars, do not be alarmed; this must take place, but the end is still to come. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be earthquakes in various places; there will be famines. This is but the beginning of the birth pangs.
We remember before God those who are ill at home or in hospital and those who care for and about them: Gwen Bomby, Loulla Livesey, Lesley Wilkinson, Graham Shaw, Miriam Laventiz, Clifford Williams, Jeff Jones, Simona Ioan, Harry Hutchinson, Steve Glover, David Moren
We remember before God those who have died recently and all who mourn their death including:

We also remember before God those whose anniversary of death falls in the coming week including:
Kath Bancroft, Lewis Walthall, Nellie Berry, Ronald Timperley, Joan Margaret Barlow, Robert Peter Lewis, Jack Harrison, Edna Bishop, Margaret Singleton
It is our practice to say Morning and Evening Prayer (the Common Worship Daily Office). You are very welcome to join us in church at 9.00am and 4.30pm Mondays to Thursdays (beginning tomorrow with Evening Prayer) or follow this at home.
